Yes, it is going to be "adios amigos" to my good buddy Duke the chihuahua. He has multiple problems layered one on top of the other. He has a bad heart valve which is causing congestive heart failure resulting in fluid backing up in his lungs making it difficult for him to breathe And lots of fluid in the abdomen causing his abdomen to distend. Put on top of that a large perineal hernia which may cause the intestine to become blocked. He is totally deaf and his vision is failing. Plus all of his leg joints are extremely loose and the vet said that his hips will dislocate in time. You know, getting old is a bummer.
